BRITISH blues-rock artist Laurence Jones will perform at the Lending Room in Leeds on December 12 as part of his latest UK tour.

The young man has already been introduced into the Hall of Fame at the British Blues Awards for winning Young Artist Of The Year 2014, 2015 & 2016.

Hailed as “one to watch” as a teenager, he has also been voted Best European Guitarist in the European Music Awards and sold more than 50,000 copies of his four solo albums.

Laurence, famed for his take-no-prisoners, incendiary live performances, he has supported Status Quo, Van Morrison, Buddy Guy, Jools Holland, Robert Cray and Joe Bonamassa.

He is touring Europe with his latest album Laurence Jones Band, whose first single I’m Waiting was released earlier this year.

Laurence has been writing songs and releasing albums since 2012, playing to packed house across Europe and paving the way for a new generation of blues-rock performers, guitarists and singer songwriters.

He said:,”I’m really proud to bring you this new album, two years of hard work have gone into the planning and recording of it. I will let the music do the talking though and see you on the road at a show!”
